'Absolutely Fabulous' Film On The Cards, Says Jennifer Saunders At The BAFTAs

Absolutely Fabulous star Jennifer Saunders says she hopes to start filming a big screen version of the show next year.

The actress - who plays champagne-swigging PR Edina Monsoon in the comedy - is hopeful all the cast can get together then.

She said: "We've made the Olympics one and it goes out a week before the Olympics. We might make a film next year.

"It's so hard to get everybody together for that amount of time, but hopefully..."

The star, who picked up a TV Bafta for her performance in the show, said it was not difficult getting back into character as Eddy for the Christmas special.

She said: "She's such a part of me anyway that actually it's hard to shake her off."
